Falls Management, Avoidance, and Reduction Strategies in the ACF/ALR/ALP 

Webinar Description

Resident falls are a serious and unrelenting challenge for Adult Care Facilities and Assisted Living Residences. They are the occurrence most likely to lead to a negative outcome, sometimes even resulting in death related to trauma. Many violations and enforcements result from incidents involving resident falls.  In light of these facts, ACFs/ALRs/ALPs should have adequate, effective falls reduction strategies in place.

During the session our presenter will address the most common causes of falls in the adult care setting, the direct impact on ACFs/ALRs/ALPs and how to best manage, avoid, and reduce resident falls. The most current approaches to falls avoidance and reduction using Falls Risk Assessment tools, staff involvement, accurate service planning, a culture of safety, and current technology will also be covered. 

Presented by: Kathy Sindoni, RN,BSN,CLNC; Substantial Compliance Consulting Group
